Fabrice Jaumont Honored for his work in Bilingual Education
There’s a revolution brewing and the French are in the leading ranks of the rebels! On Tuesday evening April 23, Cultural Counselor Antonin Baudry bestowed the insignia of the Palmes Académiques on our own Fabrice Jaumont, who, as Education Attaché of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, has helped lead the vanguard of the bilingual revolution in American classrooms. Dual-language programs and French heritage language learning are empowering the growing number of students and parents who have clamored for serious bilingual study. The fervor of this movement’s supporters was palpable as the guests gave a rousing, affectionate standing ovation for Fabrice following Mr. Baudry’s conferral speech.
